    I don't have to have a medical degree I simply have an opinion and mine is that it should not be allowed medicinally or otherwise.

    One thing we have in the voters favour is that we vote for the party and not the person. As such the party can put someone else into the top job if the need arises. If Libs get in and Abbott keeps gaffing up they can get rid of him and put 2IC into the top seat which as it stands is Julie Bishop (current deputy) or another challenger.

    We've already seen this in action twice in recent history by Labour. First they dumped Rudd because he was/is a terrible PM. Then they put him back in to try win an election based on being liked by more voters than Gillard.

    Labour want to have a chance at the election so they dumped Gillard in order to try win as many seats and keep themselves in power even though Gillard was vastly superior PM. Rudd is a very strong electioneer and gives the Labour candidates in marginal seats a better chance for a very nice pay packet if they get in. They don't get pay packets if they don't win their seat so why support a better PM if you have a chance of losing your seat.

    Not much a fan of Abbott either. As a guy I cringe when-ever he talks. I'm a fan of a person's rights to decide who they marry or what control they have over their own body, etc. I'm not a fan of "dinosaurs" running for parliament as they belong in the past.

    I'm getting sea sick from swaying to and fro in deciding who to vote for.

    Completely off topic but no thc for medicinal purposes? I don't get it? It's a naturally occurring plant that has proven benefits even for thjngs like cancer. How can pharmaceuticals be better? Probably need a new thread.

    I saw Rudd's response to Abbott's comments. He said something along the lines of if this was said by an employer in a workplace he'd be in some serious strife. The thing I don't understand about this is that it *is* in a workplace situation, so I don't see how it can be considered acceptable.
    I know if I was introduced to new colleagues or clients by my employer as 'young, feisty and with sex appeal' I would feel humiliated and degraded. I think it is awful.

    Rudd changed the rules so the PM can't be kicked out of office that way again.

    As much as I believe that there is a general party line I also know that it is heavily influenced by the leader and their beliefs. Being a secular nation I don't think religion should ever be part of the decision making to policies and Abbott has made it clear that his line of linking on many issues comes down to his religion. No thanks.

    He changed the Labor Party's rules. That won't affect a Coalition government.

    Not sure what I feel about decriminalising drugs - but I do wonder, why is it that it ok for man made highly toxic and addictive chemicals to be legal and not pot? I am personally not a fan of pot - but if someone is in agonising pain and or dying, then who am I to say what ways they should find their relief.

    I must have misunderstood that when I read what it entailed. My bad.

    Julie Bishop ain't my cup of tea either.
